Discuss all things Rovers related except...

After Conway's goal against Portsmouth, the steward is seen ___.

of the likes of never before. I have seen some stewards in my time, let me tell you. I have a steward on staff named Stew Stuart, I call him Stewie, great guy. He's helped me over many advertisement boards, including putting my face on many of them. I am just glad he didn't ruin it by throwing his face into, that would have been bad, as in not good, not great at all. That is why I am issuing an executive order to ---------- so we can Make Stewards Great Again!

This will be a test of whether last week's performance was just a rainy day performance or some real momentum building.

Good game to look forward to today for both clubs in the quest for promotion. Good game to look forward to for both sets of fans. Good too to see Shefield United now top of the championship and who where of course promoted from league one last season. Lets hope Rovers can follow in their footsteps. No predictions on me for the outcome today as everytime i have been confident of a Rovers win we end up not winning. I will say though that over the season i think both Rovers and Wigan will be in the top two places come next May.

I totally agree with your first sentence. I embrace your second with much spirit, & sincerely hope it happens as you say.

Possibly a slightly more defensive line-up, away at an in form side?

That was a slightly underwhelming first half. Looks like it's really windy there today, so I can imagine that's why long balls aren't being launched to the moon. Other than that, it's has been uneventful.

Bennett sent off for a dive and second yellow. I don't know how I feel about that.

Crap, Bennett

I actually feel pretty good about Chapman coming into the game though

Well a draw is well deserved when the ref decides to call pretty much everything wrong against you. Not sure about that Bennett dive, I honestly think that was an absolute mistake.

Other than that, both sides didn't produce anything of value. A draw is deserved for both sides.

I don't think it was a dive at all. I had no confidence in the ref from the second or third minute, and I think he's had a shocking game. I felt we were just starting to improve when the red card was given, with Bennett and Dack getting in to better positions and starting to affect the game more.

Getting a point, on the road, vs league leaders down a man... I take it gladly.
